Winter Wonderland

I am fairly certain when I awoke to the whisper of Christmas songs in the wee hours of the morning and went in search of the source that Elfie was sitting right here...

And the faint but lively version of Frosty the Snowman was coming from his general direction.

But when we woke up this morning, and by we I mean Ryan... at the CRACK OF DAWN... Elfie had either been prowling the house and got caught in the act of getting back to his perch, or he decided compliments of the snowman on the other side of the door that he wouldn't be able to keep an eye on us as we worked on our outdoor Christmas lights so he moved to get a better view.

And I don't blame him, blink around here and those elves sprinkle a little Christmas Magic and before you know it there's even more Christmas to be found.

A whole host of snowman appeared, though I am a bit worried about how long they might stay.  With the weather outside hovering around a balmy 75 they just might melt.

A family of gingerbread men also arrived, bringing their stockings in tow.

And before we knew it, the Nutcrackers appeared along with giant snowflakes.

The flakes latched onto and clung to the live oak tree creating a shimmery wonderland that these pictures just don't do justice to.

The only thing missing of course, other than chilly weather, a cup of hot chocolate, my Compact Flash card for my nice camera, and enough snow to build a snowman was the the twinkling of Christmas lights.  Something I had hoped we might give the elves a hand with today...
